    Hey Everyone!
    Im abit concerned with puppys tail. Shes a cross breed but she has a tail that you would think a labrador would have. She has a very waggy tail and usually her tail points up slightly when she is relaxed but recently shes been nibbling part of her tail and it now points downwards. Its not at a bad angle or anything but it is a different angle it usually is.

    Ive checked under the fur and there is no cut or bruise or anything.
    Ive applied a small amount of presure and it does not bother her.
    Ive felt it gently to see if its broken in any place and it doesnt feel like it is..

    But something doesnt seem right :confused: anyone else had this? would pictures help? x

    :eek: She has! she also had a bath when she got home! :eek: Ill get some heat pads and well get it checked by the vet to make sure it feels better soon.

    Is there anything else i can do? Thats exactly how it looks! Thank you rona x

    It's nothing drastic, best not to walk to far for a couple of days and try to prevent her wagging her tail.
    Will take a week to 10 days to be back to normal.
    It's very very painful apparently

    Thank you :eek:
    she doesnt seem too bothered tbh.. but shes had stomach ulcers and a poorly tummy before so maybe this pain isnt as bad or something lol

    Weve heated up a heatpad so its warm but not hot and we are popping it under her tail when she relaxes :thumbup: she doesnt mind the heatpad which is good.

    Shes off to the vet this week for a monthly blood test so we will mention it when we go :eek: x
